What’s New at the Indy Zoo?

Joey Amato | January 25, 2021

Some of the most impressive reptiles on the planet will be featured in their new exhibit, Alligators & Crocodiles: The Fight to Survive. Construction will be under way soon for the new exhibit, which will be located on the west end of the zoo, near the entrance to Plains. There, visitors can meet two remarkable species — the American alligator and the Orinoco crocodile — and learn about their vastly different conservation stories.

Not only are these some of the largest living reptiles, they’re also among the oldest. Crocodilians originated more than 200 million years ago. And with their scaly, armored bodies, razor-sharp teeth and massive tails, they closely resemble the dinosaur relatives they outlived.
